Podcast Lounge was among the most popular podcast apps in the days of Windows Phone 8.1, and now it's set to make a return for Windows 10. The app, now dubbed Podcast Lounge 2, is now available as an open beta on the Microsoft Store (via All About Windows Phone) for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices.
The Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app includes a number of the same features that were present in the Windows Phone 8.1 app, along with some new goodies as well. You can easily subscribe to podcasts from a searchable directory, and there are variable speed and skip options available as well. A collection of options in the Tools menu also provides quick access to importing and exporting your podcasts, along with the option to backup and restore settings to OneDrive.
As All About Windows Phone points out, new to the UWP version the option to view and browse podcasts by category, as well an an auto-categorize feature.
Given that this is an open beta, you're likely to encounter bugs along the way. However, if you're looking for a native podcatcher for your Windows 10 PC or Windows 10 Mobile device, Podcast Lounge 2 could be worth a look.
